DAMASCUS: It is now clear to everyone that the military infrastructure of Al-Qaeda/Nusra has been devastated in the Qalamoon and in the Lebanese area of ‘Arsaal. Rat communications depict an army without commanders, ammunition or medicine. In Faleeta, recently liberated in its entirety, the SAA is simply combing the area searching for the scrawny, undernourished and demoralized rats who once terrorized the area. During the last 48 hours alone, the terrorists lost 179 of their smelliest vermin.
Jaraajeer Heights: The SAA has advanced remarkably against terrorist positions aided by Lebanese Resistance stalwarts. The 34 confirmed kills indicate complete reliance on foreigners from Central Asia and the Caucasus.
Shu’bat Al-Tamsa, Shu’bat Waadi Al-Ahmar, Qurnat Waadi Al-Ahmar, Ra`s Al-Koosh and Waadi Qaadoomi were all liberated last night in a massive push against remaining rodents positions.
Bayt Jinn: 16 rodents killed here with scores wounded – all surrendering. A pickup with a 23mm cannon was destroyed:
Muhammad Wasseem Shuqayri
Qaassim Salmaan Al-Sayyid-Moussa
Jalaal Mahmoud ‘Uqda
Wadhdhaah Saabir Mushaymish
The rest were not identified and are believed to be foreigners.
Khaan Al-Shaykh Town: Skirmishing with no details.
Al-Husayniyya West Farms: Ditto.
